Microsoft Announces Office 2010, codename Office 14, Release Date

In a shrewd marketing maneuver, Microsoft has officially confirmed the fact that Office 2010 will be released, drum rolls please, in 2010. Yes, codename Office 14 has been branded as Office 2010 and it will reach RTM (release to manufacturing) and GA (general availability) status in the first half of next year. No precise release date has been provided by the Redmond-based software developer.

“We’re announcing that Microsoft will begin releasing new versions of Office-related products this year. Exchange 2010 will be the first product in this lineup, entering beta for customers to download today. Exchange 2010 will become available in the second half of 2009. Office 2010 — including Office Web applications, SharePoint Server 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010 — will enter a technical preview in the third quarter of 2009 and will release to manufacturing in the first half of 2010,” says Senior vice president of Microsoft’s Information Worker Product Management Group, Chris Capossela in an interview for Microsoft Press Pass.

Now that we’re clear on the release date (at least we know that Office 2010 will be released in 2010), let’s switch focus to something a little more worthwhile: Office 2010 will come in 2 flavors (for 32-bit and for 64-bit processors) and it is specially designed so as to address the choice and flexibility needs of modern users.

Chris Capossela again: “With these new products we are giving people a familiar interface across PCs, mobile phones and browsers to make it even easier for them to create, communicate and collaborate from any location. By listening to our customers, we know that people want to stay connected to each other. They want an easy way to bring their ideas to life, and they want the freedom to use Office from more locations and on more devices. The next wave of Office-related products will give them just that. It will be even easier for people to create and collaborate in real time using the Web, the phone or their PC.”
